The Thang

Challenge 1: 20-20

YHC guided the PAX to the field where 2 signs had been set-up, 50 yards apart.  Each sign had a list of 10 different exercises on it, for 20 exercises total.  YHC explained that the PAX would complete 20 reps of each exercise and then would sprint to the other sign.  Flapjack until all 20 exercises were completed.  Pick up the 6 or Plank until the 6 is in.

The exercises were as follows:

Challenge 2: Double Vision

Fill my eyes with that double vision.  No disguise for that double vision“.  YHC circled up the PAX on the basketball court.  YHC advised that we would be repeating the exercises that we executed on the 20-20 Challenge.  YHC explained that he would call out the exercise from his Weinke.  This time, however, PAX would take turns (moving clockwise) leading the Cadence for each exercise.  20 reps of each exercise would be completed.  Following each exercise, PAX would complete 20 SSH on their own.  Rinse and repeat until all 20 exercises were conquered.

The Moleskin

YHC asked that 2020 be a year of perfect vision for the PAX.  That our perfect vision would give clarity on how to best serve our communities, and others in need–inside and outside of F3.  YHC asked that our perfect vision guide us in our pursuit of being the very best husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, friends, and servant leaders that we can be.  YHC asked that this perfect vision be spread throughout our country, and across the globe.  YHC asked for our added acuity to spark dialogue, collaboration, cooperation, and peace across all of mankind.  YHC prayed that the 2020s bring cures to disease, to poverty, and to hunger.  YHC concluded by asking for perfect vision that allows us to see the individual path that is laid out for us by Sky Q, and that our added clarity will give us the courage to walk that path, bringing us all closer to Sky Q each day.
